RationalWiki's 2019 Fundraiser

There is no RationalWiki without you. We are a small non-profit with no staff – we are hundreds of volunteers who document pseudoscience and crankery around the world every day. We will never allow ads because we must remain independent. We cannot rely on big donors with corresponding big agendas. We are not the largest website around, but we believe we play an important role in defending truth and objectivity.

If everyone who saw this today donated $5, we would meet our goal for 2019.

Fighting pseudoscience isn't free.
We are 100% user-supported! Help and donate $5, $20 or whatever you can today with PayPal Logo.png!

Donations so far: $6000Goal: $6000

Proposition[edit]

This is a debate on whether or not humanity, as a species, will drive ourselves to extinction. Whether by climate change, nuclear war, or manmade pandemic, will we wipe ourselves out? —вιgℓʝвιgℓ (ᴛᴀʟᴋ/sᴛᴀʟᴋ) 23:47, 2 September 2017 (UTC)

My guess: death by global warming. ClickerClock (talk) 03:52, 12 September 2017 (UTC)

Counter-Proposition[edit]

All things come to an end eventually. The only question - on a "billions of years" timescale - is "when". That said, I think homo sapiens sapiens still has some fuel in the tank. Evil Zionist (talk) 22:34, 3 September 2017 (UTC)
